It doesn't call home, doesn't require a Google account, and is fully Free and Open Source Software.

After getting all my SSH servers enabled with two-factor authentication, I changed my OTP Android application from Google Authenticator to FreeOTP, developed by Red Hat.

Introduction
We are a group of technology and open source enthusiasts in or near Chicago, IL. While our group has historically focused on GNU/Linux, we have branched out in recent years. Our members and participants now have a broad range of interests and include users of all the major operating systems.

We host periodic meetings in and around Chicago that feature talks on a wide variety of interesting topics related to technology and high-tech culture.

Also of interest are our frequent Programming Tonight gatherings. These informal events give members the opportunity to work together on projects, both code-related and otherwise. PT generally takes place at a coffee shop on a Friday evening.
